Exploring Number Names: From One to One Hundred

Learning number names is a fundamental part of early childhood education. It helps children develop a strong foundation in mathematics and prepares them for more complex numerical concepts. This blog will explore the importance of learning number names, provide detailed lists of number names from 1 to 100, and offer tips and activities for teaching these concepts to children.

Why Learning Number Names is Essential

Benefits for Early Childhood Education: Learning number names helps children recognize and understand numbers, which is crucial for their cognitive development. It lays the groundwork for arithmetic skills and enhances their ability to count, add, subtract, and understand mathematical relationships.

Role in Mathematical Development: Knowing number names aids in the development of numerical literacy. It helps children understand the place value system, which is vital for grasping more complex mathematical concepts later on.

Everyday Applications: Number names are used in everyday life for telling time, handling money, measuring, and following sequences. Teaching children number names equips them with the skills they need for these everyday tasks.

Number Names 1 to 10

Introducing young children to the number names from one to ten is the first step in their numerical education. This foundational knowledge is essential for understanding larger numbers and mathematical concepts.

Tips for Teaching Young Children: Use visual aids like flashcards, number charts, and picture books. Engage children with songs, rhymes, and interactive games that reinforce number names.


Number Names 11 to 20

After mastering the numbers one to ten, children can move on to the numbers eleven to twenty. These numbers introduce new patterns and help children understand the concept of teen numbers.

Common Patterns and Tips for Memorization: Notice the pattern in the teen numbers (thirteen, fourteen, etc.) and use repetition to help children memorize them. Associating each number with a visual or story can also aid retention.


Number Names 21 to 50

As children progress, they begin to understand larger numbers. The number names from twenty-one to fifty build on their existing knowledge and introduce them to more complex numerical patterns.

    Cambridge Pathway School

    Cambridge Primary starts learners on an exciting educational journey. Typically for 5 to 11-year-olds, it develops young learners who are confident, responsible, reflective, innovative, and engaged and includes an assessment that proves and improves learning. Students in this programme follow Stages 1 to 6 of the Cambridge Primary Curriculum, which continues to build on the foundations that are established in the Early Years Foundation Stage. Ongoing reviews ensure that each student’s progress and development are continuous and meet predetermined standards.

    We encourage students to think independently, use their initiative, and participate in a meaningful and active manner in the learning process. At the end of Grade 5 (Stage 6), students will prepare for the University of Cambridge Primary Checkpoint Examinations in English, Mathematics, and Science. The tests are marked in Cambridge to provide an international benchmark of learner performance. Learners receive a statement of achievement and a diagnostic feedback report. Feedback reports show how a learner has performed in relation to the curriculum, their learning group, the whole school, and against all learners who have taken tests in that series around the world.

    The core academic curriculum includes instruction in English, Mathematics, Science, Global Perspective (Social Studies & EVM) and Digital Learning. Kannada is taught to all students and caters for native and non-native speakers. In addition, the school offers French and Hindi. The overall educational experience is enhanced and supplemented with an enriched visual and performing arts programme that embraces both western and local culture as well as an excellent school sports provision.

    The Finnish Education Model

    Freedom to choose, express, explore and learn. These are the wings of the learning flight in PNCCS. Our pedagogy adaption to the world’s best education system is to prepare today’s learners for Gen-Z. As a resource school, it is our endeavour in providing an enriching learning environment for our Cognitions to learn.
    The Finnish Adaptation in our school is characterized by the understanding that a student who is happy in the classroom and is comfortable since he/she is free to learn at his own pace, will learn the knowledge that is needed. Finnish teachers have genuine pedagogical freedom, as well as autonomy to teach. Therefore, they are motivated in their day to day activities. Teachers spend approximately 400 + hours of training during a year. This includes a wide range of skills such as Subject Matter Expertise, Classroom Management, Equipping Students with 21st Century Skills, and many more.
    The Facilitators have at their disposal a range of ready-to-use materials in their classrooms. The learning labs and Research Points empower the teacher to promote experiential and active learning.
    Thus a plant rooted in good soil and environment bears fruits that sustains itself and the community. And so is every Cognition.
    Progressing in this pathway, two initiatives that shape our children’s mind is “Speakathon” and “Thoughtcast”. These learning platforms help the learners to reflect on various topics which impact them, the environment, and the community at large. Learners express, debate, and pen down their thoughts. Thus transforming them into confident individuals who can voice their opinions, accept or reflect on critical reviews and collaborate to find solutions.
    The pedagogy promotes mastery of learning through thinking routines. It is a synonym for the layers of soil. Each is different in texture and composition but all are important.
